Maeir, A. M., Magness, J., and Schiffman, L. H., eds. In press (2011). ‘Go Out and Study the Land’ (Judges 18:2): Archaeological, Historical and Textual Studies in Honor of Hanan Eshel. Supplement to the Journal for the Study of Judaism 148. Leiden: Brill.
This volume is a collection of studies by good friends of the late Hanan Eshel (z”l), which were presented to him before his untimely death, and have now been gathered together in a volume in his memory (note that we left the title [“In Honor”] as Hanan had seen it before he passed away). We have been promised that the volume will be out in November, 2011, in time for the SBL meeting, and we, the editors, are planning to present the volume to Esti, Hanan’s widow, at the SBL meeting.

It’s going to sell for $196 (oh Brill, why do you do these things?) It’s a volume I’d love to have. Maybe they’ll off a good discount at SBL. Otherwise…
